"Speed up the tour and lunch. No need to drag out the day after the interviews are over." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing! they're friendly, professional, welcoming, and very responsive!" More from this Member | Report Response

"cut out lunch and perhaps streamline the interview process. holding the interview till 2 pm seems a little long, especially concerning that the actual interview portion only takes an hour or so. also, minor detail, but parking passes should be emailed/mailed to applicants, that way there isn't the awkward walk up to the building, grab a parking pass, walk back to your car, and then back up to the building again. not so fun when its raining."

What do you like most?

"I love that this school is new and that there are so many opportunities to get involved. Our professors are some of the most selfless individuals I have ever met. They will do anything and everything in their power to make sure you succeed. They all have an open door policy, which I have used multiple times over the past year. I feel like I will be an amazing clinician when I graduate in 2018. The community in Greenville LOVES the school and our patient base is huge!" | Report Response

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
